The team R•evolution was founded in 2017. The team consists of undergraduate students from Robotics Lab of Tomsk Polytechnic University. The team participated in RoboCup Russia Open 2017 Humanoid Kid Size league and took the 2nd place. In addition, the team participated in RoboCup Asia-Pacific 2017 Humanoid Kid Size league and took the 2nd place in regular and drop-in games. Since our team is new to the competition, our main goal is to realize a good game performance but we hope to make a research contribution to development of RoboCup initiative.
The Robotics lab was created in Tomsk Polytechnic University in 2011. The goal of lab is to develop the robotics skill of the students and popularize the robotics. Students of lab actively participate different robotics challenges in Russia. In 2012 lab organizes Lego Contest with the students of Kure College of Technology (Japan) to share the experience of mobile robot control. After that group of students in lab start to work with Humanoid robots (Robotis Bioloid) and organize the team for dance competition at Robofest 2012 (Moscow) where they took the 1st place. In 2014 lab prepares the team to participate the International Robotics Challenge (IIT Bombay, India). Moreover, in 2014 students of lab participate the International Humanoid Robot Olympic games in China where they compete in robot dancing and get the prizes. At that moment students start the research about humanoid robot stability and control.
